Oops, I'm sorry, I just threw up in my mouth
Plenty to discuss about this weekend past and the week to come... But first this tidbit from the Boston Globe's
"Buzz" section:Sox take a look at old friend El Guapo
The Boston Herald reported that former Red Sox pitcher Rich Garces recently auditioned for Sox scouts in Fort Myers, where he is working out. Garces pitched well this winter, posting a 2.08 ERA in the Venezualan winter league. Although a Sox official gave the 34-year-old Garces a "1-in-10,000" chance of rejoining the team, Garces reportedly was throwing the ball well. Garces, who spent seven seasons in Boston and has a career ERA of 3.74, hasn't pitched in the majors since 2002.
If by El Guapo, they're referring to the overstuffed burritos that Nate and his friends at El Pelon produce, then I'm all for it. Especially with crema y enano verde hot sauce. But if by El Guapo, they mean the gopher-ball throwing Venezuelan, then no, no, no.
They should rub the nose of whatever scout thought this was a good idea in it.
No. Bad. Bad scout. Bad cross checker. Don't.
